Aussies Build The World’s First X5 Ute

Truck

The Australian love of the Ute has led to something wonderful.

Forall of the success enjoyed by the Ford Ranchero and the Chevy El Camino, thelove Americans feel for this vehicle type pales in comparison to the love theAustralians have for their Utes. It doesn't even come close. It therefore comes as no surprise that an Australian firm, known down under as Motorline BMW, was the first to convert a BMW X5 into a Ute. The result is quite good.

Once, BMW did build a factory M3 Ute prototype, and it wouldbe easy to confuse this for a similar factory effort. The glaring indicator here is that the rear window panel comes from a Toyota and is labeled as such,but you’d have to look hard to find it. There are not a lot of details supplied here, but wedo know that it is powered by the 3.0 diesel engine, which is appropriatelyutilitarian. Hey, BMW, take note.
